Martin the Mouse February Post - Valentine's DayThe “holiday season” may be over, but we still have plenty to celebrate. February has one of my favorite holidays: Valentine’s Day.

The day gets its name in honor of St. Valentine, and I like to celebrate it by giving heart-shaped cards to my friends to tell them I love them. Like many holidays, Valentine’s Day is known for its desserts.

As you may know, I LOVE sweets. Mice eat around 15 to 20 times a day. On Valentine’s Day it might be closer to 25. Strawberries are my go-to snacks when I get hungry. They’re delicious, and healthy, and they look like hearts when they’re cut in half!

There’s a super duper easy Strawberry Shortcake recipe you can make to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year! All you need is strawberries, whipped cream, and shortcake.

  1. Wash and slice the strawberries
  2. Set a piece of shortcake on a plate
  3. Put a little bit of whipped cream on it
  4. Plop your strawberries onto the whipped cream
  5. Top it off with even more whipped cream

That’s all there is to it! You could even repeat the steps to make it a double- or triple-decker sandwich. Yum!

In addition to Valentine’s Day cards and shortcakes, give your loved ones the gift of reading. Send them a Martin the Mouse Book Club Package!
